Capability to load a file into a task form

It would be good to be able to load a task form, with a file populated so the user can download or view the file.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    I will update the ticket if we have anything to share on this idea.

    Waiting for this feature too.

    Uploading files to external data source just to get an Download URL is very inefficient. Not mentioning using extra steps & make manage process more complex to achieve it, but also using extra file storage that is linked to pay grade of cloud storage service.

    Since files are come in as a Blob files collection, making Downloadable URL is quiet simple by using JS.

    As it already supported via view submitted form.

    Can't we use file upload like other controls in form variable? Show data by drag-drop from form variables.

    Just extracting downloadable URL by card is OK too.

    Hope for an update soon.

    Any updates on this? When will this be released?

    This is a common issue for task management. I would say files are 50% of task management. In my opinion, this is an imperative feature for task management since we learned recently with failed workflows, that Outlook has file size limitations.

    If you add files via hyperlinks from a SharePoint source, we have to go through extra loops and steps for security since users have to have, at minimum, read rights to the source - sometimes we cannot allow this due to business requirements or security risks. It would make the most sense if files are made available on TASKS since Nintex already provides a level of security on the tasks - only visible to task assignee(s).
